Life Lessons about Kindness and Compassion

Carol Hair Moore loves making appearances in the North Florida community. She cherishes the moments she spends at the library reading to children and wearing her favorite costumes! All the books in her first series, I Wish You Ice Cream and Cake, reside at the Governor’s Mansion where she is a guest reader to visiting children.


Meet Our Friends in North Florida

Each book in the I Wish You Ice Cream and Cake series focuses on native animals found within the North Florida region of St. Teresa Beach, Moore Farm, and the Apalachicola National Forest. These locations and animals offer children a familiar story that takes place in their backyards, and for those who don’t live in the area, a chance to share a story in a new place. Meet our North Florida friends!
